Smaller Class Sizes

PETITION Community Consolidated School District 15 Classroom Size This year District 15 has a number of overcrowded classrooms in multiple schools. With 30+ children in one classroom it is very difficult for teachers to provide the quality education and individual student attention needed for success. Program Assistants are helpful, but they can not take the place of certified experienced teachers. Residents in District 15 are deeply concerned about the large class sizes, the quality of education and the equitable distribution of teachers across all grade levels. This petition represents the desire for (1) the Board of Education to revise District 15 class size guidelines and (2) in conjunction with the Superintendents and Principals, to provide additional teachers for the classrooms that exceed the target class size by more than 20%, effective immediately.
